Hello, we are so happy you're here! We are Alison Scovie and Jason Evers-Hellmich, the Publishers of BeLocal Elk Grove. We have made it our mission to support all things local by providing the community with a resource that conveys just how amazing Elk Grove is. If you're a local here, then you know this town is different than anywhere you've been and although it's growing rapidly, it somehow manages to hold onto its small town charm. If you're new to the area, we hope BeLocal helps you discover all the hidden gems that sometimes take years to find!
Our goal with BeLocal is to bring to light many of the countless opportunities of living in Elk Grove from the NeighborGood Farmers Market at District56, to the great craft breweries like Hungry Pecker Brewing, to catching a beautiful sunset after a walk near Camden Lake, to the popular splash pad at Derr-Okamoto Park.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy life with BeLocal, your guide to your community!

BeLocal has been such a vital part of my business as a REALTOR®! What I appreciate most about this magazine is its commitment to highlighting local businesses, events, and personalities. I provide each of my clients with the magazine or the QR code link, and I’ve received outstanding feedback. They have found this fabulous resource to be exceptionally useful for learning about the people and places that make our city so unique.
Local Resident & REALTOR®
When our family moved to Elk Grove a couple of years ago, it was difficult coming to a new place without friends or family. When we received our BeLocal Magazine, it was like we made a new friend who knew all of the best places. We found many hidden gems like coffee shops, walking trails, playgrounds, and restaurants that allowed us to explore and spend quality time together as a family. It was exactly what we needed to make our new city feel like home. We can't wait to continue exploring other local secrets that BeLocal has highlighted!
